    So excited! Haven't bought a TB bag since my Empire Builder which I like a lot (but don't love). Bought a PCBP in the Island which matches the interior of my A30...so super cute and will be the...
  2. Update

    I'm on my first significant trip today.

    Normal routine: Pilot with AS, A45 as backpack
    Today's routine: EB in hand, A45 with AS

    First thought: I bought this bag to have something techno and...

    Thanks, everyone. I just looked at the cadet and, while the simple design is appealing, it doesn't really move me.

    The EB arrived the other day. First impressions.

    It is huge, as has been...

    :( Thanks for relaying your experience, dannyre. I've been on the fence more times than I can count with the EB. I know there are other threads lamenting the lack of an in-between Pilot / EB...
  5. I'm going to take the plunge: Empire Builder after Pilot after S25

    My current carry is A45 with Pilot and it has served me mostly well over the years. The A45 can be too big many times but that doesn't bother me. The Pilot can be too small which does cause issues....

    Oh, wow @Kaadk. You leave the TB community for a few months and come back to see new products! The cubelet was one (I'm burning up to get one) and now the Stowaway is another. What a clever...

    @AVService Thanks for this; it is very inspiring! I can see a plan taking shape. I'd love to hear from anyone else if they have tried something like this too.

    I'm considering packing the laptop into the slot where the backpack straps normally go. Then my stuff stacks that hold my charger / flash drives will go into an end pocket of the A45. I will carry...

    Now I'm curious to try to pack the Pilot into the A45, as a trial run for the idea of a TS + DLBC...I'm excited to try it out. If people are interested I'll post my journey here.

    This is definitely a possibility! An under-packed Pilot with a Tristar...I'll have to give that some thought. The DLBC is quite tempting...although now we are looking at $400 rather than $240!

    Wow, mrvco, you can carry everything you need for <week travel in a Pilot! I'm guessing you don't wear makeup or have hair products :)

    Yes, my main issue is that I'm looking for a briefcase with...

    Congratulations on your retirement! If you are anything like my mom, you will be busier than when you were working!



    It will take a lot to convince me to go back to a roller (unless TB puts...
  13. Another Post about Western Flyer as a Briefcase (A45 spin)

    Hello TB folks!

    When I first discovered TB I bought an S25 and carried it as my business bag with a rollerboard as my luggage. As the rollerboard started to bite the dust, I decided to go A45...

    @AVService: I wear the A45 on my back and the Pilot on my right shoulder. The two laptops are in the Pilot. So my right shoulder carries the burden of half of the A45 plus the pilot. In my...

    @Kaadk: I travel every week and only take the necessities for work travel...now for holiday travel I am the same way as your wife.
    @tpnl: Thanks for the links!

    @kieri: I want it all! I try to travel as lightly as possible but there are times when my shoe / jacket needs push it over the top.

    @tpnl: That's a great idea about the padded hip belt...I...
  17. Getting too Heavy: A45/Pilot vs. Rollerboard/S25

    Hi All,

    I'm not sure that anyone can help with this...but I'm curious what are your opinions.

    I used to carry a rollerboard and an S25. When the rollerboard started wearing out (not the S25!)...

    I LOVE MY NFTD!!!

    Sorry to yell and for the short post but I haven't had time to do a proper review.

    I used it as my personal item on an international flight and it was great. Next domestic flight (2nights,...

    Not a good experience for me, either. I switched to a duffle for short flights (before my A45) for the very reason of how much I hate standing on that jet bridge in the cold...it was never five...

    I'm a lady and don't like the SE on a strap either. I use a handle loop but mostly it fits well placed between my arm and my side...though I have the added benefit of a hip for it to sit on. Is the...

    An S25 was my EDC for about three years (downsized to Pilot) and I loved it! What I loved most was that, when I removed the cache / snake charmer, it turned from a "business backpack" to a "regular...

    That is an interesting thread, thanks! There was a reference to an "Eagle Creek Specter compression half-cube" I'll have to see if I can get one of those.

  25. Attn: human forum indexers: packing cubes vs bundles vs rolling

    I'm absolutely sure this has already been asked but I'm hoping one of the knowledgeable forum folks can point me to a discussion of why choose one method over another?
